The Wild Perch and Paw (Previously Go Wild With Birds) started many years ago due to Marie’s oldest son leaving for college. She needed something to fill her heart and keep from being a "helicopter Mom" to her youngest son. A few years before, Marie had invited her youngest son’s 3rd grade class to her home to view birds in their backyard to end their year after doing their first research paper on wild birds. The students loved the experience and many claimed it was their most favorite field trip ever!
Those students' excitement inspired Marie so much that on March 24, 2009 she opened the retail store offering her own trademarked wild bird feed called BirdBaitTM, plus her favorite feeders. In November, 2018 she changed the name of the store to The Wild Perch and Paw after she began to offer premium dog and cat food in addition to the wild bird supplies.
We invite you to come and discover our unique and friendly wild bird and pet food shop, right in the heart of Neenah, WI.
